Leaves of Gold

From Blog10

Leaves of gold,
Autumn's cold
Sets you free
From the tree.
Your last chance--
Windy dance!
Downward spin,
Settle in--
Your new home
In the loam.

Do not weep.
Simply sleep.
Feed the wood
As you should.
In the spring,
God will bring
Leaves all new,
Though not you.
Yet each saint,
Strong or faint,
Still will rise
To the skies,
The same one...
Meet God's Son.
Tell His fame!
Praise his name!

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me, even if he dies, will live. Everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die —ever. Do you believe this?”
--John 11:25
